For those who don't know the reference let me explain.
The SF author Zelazny had a rule. When he didn't know where to go with a story, he had characters talk about what had happened and what was happening. By the time they were finished he would know where to go with the story.
So, after three years, it's a combination of a Zelazny and just writing the characters again and getting the feel for them. I apologize for the NO SEX in this one (At least none "Onscreen"). I shall get back to it soon. Promise.
